Dwyane Wade out tonight. Udonis Haslem and Ray Allen are playing.
Of course, it seems doubtful that Wade would sit now that Chalmers is out and Ray Allen didn't travel with the team.
Ray Allen again missed practice due to illness. Udonis Haslem back at practice despite back spasms.
Boston Herald "At this stage, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have made like the last Japanese soldiers on Iwo Jima, refusing to give up the war.

ESPN.com "Come Thursday night when the Miami Heat face the Nets for the first time since Brooklyn's league-shaking summer trade LeBron James and Dwyane Wade think some former Boston Celtics on the Nets might owe the former Celtic on the Heat an apology. A year ago there was a stream of vitriol from..." October 17
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Erik Spoelstra began by praising how veteran guard Ray Allen manages to "redefine and reinvent" himself through his 18 seasons.

Per club policy, terms of..." June 26

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Ray Allen squeezed into the overstuffed, champagne-soaked locker room and was immediately mobbed by a horde of microphones and tape recorders.

Boston Globe "While Ray Allen made sure not to overly emphasize his decision to leave Boston for Miami or take any shots at the Celtics a day before his club faces the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, he did say that his third trip to the finals in six years does offer some satisfaction. “I..."

Palm Beach Post "So, who’s next? Now that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James have missed the past two games, and Mario Chalmers the past three, to heal what the Heat have characterized as minor injuries, it’s reasonable to wonder when Erik Spoelstra will find some time off for other key members of his roster prior to..."

Barea, who was ejected Monday night for an altercation with Ray Allen and directed obscenities toward Allen as he left the floor, had strong words for the Heat’s guard after the game. “I’ve been playing in the NBA seven years,” Barea told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I..." March 06
South Florida Sun Sentinel "Miami Heat guard Ray Allen had simple words to describe the altercation between he and J.J. Barea during Monday night’s game. “It just came out nowhere,” Allen said.

January 09
Hot Hot Hoops "Ray Allen has already made two game-winning 3s for the Miami Heat this season. His four-point play against the Denver Nuggets enabled Miami to squeak by despite playing bad defense and getting pummeled on the glass. And most recently, Allen's 3 Saturday gave Miami a close win after the Heat played..." November 26
Miami Herald "A layup, he called it. That's how easy Saturday's game-winning three-pointer felt in the hands of Ray Allen in the fraction of a second it took him to catch an outlet pass from LeBron James, rise uncontested and give the Heat a come-from-behind victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. How do you..." November 26
Cleveland Plain Dealer "In basketball, as in many things in life, there are no moral victories. Not even for these young Cleveland Cavaliers, so inexperienced and so unheralded. Not even when the Cavaliers came within mere seconds of knocking off the defending-champion Miami Heat on Saturday at AmericanAirlines..." November 25
Miami Herald "Clearly, the whole Miami-Cleveland beef doesn't interest the Heat anymore.

Miami trailed by seven points with..." November 25
Miami Herald "Three games into his first season with the Heat, reserve guard Ray Allen is making 56.3 percent of his three-pointers, which is third in the NBA among players with at least 10 attempts.

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "For all the moments he has created over his 17 seasons, Ray Allen says what has kept him grounded is that he continues to live in the moment.

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Q: There is absolutely no reason that Ray Allen, at 37 years old, should be attempting to defend another team's point guard.

Denver Post "One by one, the Nuggets' players laced their double digit-sized, triple-figure designer kicks, escaping this locker room, this arena, this feeling. But Corey Brewer let this feeling surround him, as he sat at his corner locker, his head buried in the palm of his hand. The Nuggets had just..." November 04
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "For most of the night, the third option practically turned into the only option. This time, even as an undersized center, Chris Bosh was second to none.

Miami Herald "For Ray Allen, the renewal of the Boston-Miami rivalry must have been an out-of-body experience.

October 31
NESN "As soon as Ray Allen agreed to sign with the Miami Heat, the most fervent Celtics supporters began their over-rationalizing.

CSN New England "It was the moment we've all been waiting for: Ray Allen entering in the game as a member of the Heat. How would he act? How would his former teammates act? Well, Ray walked over to the Celtics' bench in a good-faith gesture. Some coaching staff, including Doc Rivers, embraced the move. Kevin..." October 31
CSN New England "As much as Tuesday night's Boston-Miami game was about the Heat getting their championship bling for what they accomplished last season, it was just as much a coming out party of sorts for former Celtic Ray Allen with his new team. Allen didn't disappoint his new fans in helping Miami kick off..." October 31
Boston Herald "The Celtics [team stats] tried to give Ray Allen a chill. Many turned a cold shoulder when their former-teammate-turned rival attempted to greet them during the game. But maybe the strategy was fated to fail. Consider the circumstances: This is Miami, and the guy is now playing for a team..." October 31
Miami Herald "Step into the size 15 shoes of one Mr. Walter Ray Allen for a moment and try to imagine what it's going to feel like at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Boston Herald "Approximately 30 minutes before tipoff tomorrow night, the Miami Heat will hold a coronation for the second time in franchise history, with rings, a banner and enough corny glitz to light up Biscayne Boulevard. Ray Allen, sort of an invited guest until the game actually begins, will slap backs..." October 29
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "The proximity is what soothes Ray Allen the most. When he wanted to fish before moving here, it was somewhat of a process getting to a nearby body of water. Now, he just walks out the backdoor. "I actually live right on the ocean," said Allen, who lives in Coral Gables. "I caught a puffer..." October 28
